The Celtic Twitter account recently posted a message for Rogic, who signed for the on the 17th of January in 2013. On his ninth anniversary as a Hoops player, many fans discussed his time at the club.

Interestingly, it was reported last month that there are suggestions that Rogic might be on the radar of Ange Postecoglou and Yokohama F. Marinos, which could be the reason behind the fan begging the not to let him leave, but nothing has come of this thus far.

The Australian joined from A-League Central Coast Mariners in the summer of for a fee of £400,000. Since joining, Rogic has made 178 appearances in all competitions for and has racked up a tally of 37 goals and 31 assists.

So far this season, Rogic has made 11 appearances in all competitions for the club. He has picked up two goals and a couple of assists as well. In the Premiership, he has made eight appearances.

He had missed the early part of the season due to a knee injury. He had suffered a knee injury even towards the end of last season, before which he had made 35 appearances in all competitions for the and got a tally of five goals and six assists as well.

As per Transfermarkt, Rogic has missed 30 games to injury since the start of the 2018-19 season.

What do we think?

Rogic, who is valued at £2.7 million (as per Transfermarkt), certainly adds some goals and depth to the midfield, and being an attacking midfielder, he fits right into the 4-2-3-1 shape in the spot behind the striker. Injuries haven’t helped him but when fit, Rogic is a very effective option in that part of the pitch.
